Playing in Macau?

Anyone playing in Macau?

Is there a list of craps tables still open I know they've been getting rid of some in the casinos.

What are the craps minimums looking like right now?

Also is the buy bet Vig only on win or is it juiced up front?

I'll be there 13th and 14th if anyone wants to play some craps.

Cheers,
Nick

This is based on my experience last November, so things may have changed, but the big properties I visited (Galaxy Macau, Venetian, Wynn, Crown/City of Dreams, MGM Grand) all offered craps, but only a couple of tables (Venetian may have had as many as four, but I don't recall exactly). Venetian was also the only place where you could reliably find a table open before 4-5pm, and was also the most likely to attract Westerners, which meant a more lively game; Chinese gamblers are generally a very serious and quiet bunch, and are reluctant to join in the hootin' and hollerin' aspects of craps. That being said, we had a great session one night at Galaxy (I was staying at Banyan Tree, so Galaxy was my "home" that week), with a mix of mainlander and HK Chinese, who quickly got into the spirit of the game once a good roll developed. Walked away with a nice win, and finished the night with a few glasses of Scotch at the phenomenal Macallan Bar.

I play pass line and come with odds, so cannot comment on how they handled the buy bet vig. However, all the rules seemed pretty much in line with Strip properties, including 3x4x5x odds, typical prop bet odds, etc. Table minimum were usually in the HK100 range. Dealers were a bit slow, but competent overall, despite not always having the best grasp of English. I think the Galaxy crew liked having my buddy and I at the table, as a couple of loud Americans added some authenticity to the game. Once we would get going, there was always a crowd of curious onlookers. Overall, it was a great experience and one I would do again in a heartbeat. In fact, I've been toying with the idea of trying out American's new non-stop from DFW to HKG and spending a couple nights in Macau.

socalduck,

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I found your post very helpful and informative. Most likely I will hit every casino up with a craps table just to get the feel of which I like better. I've only got two nights to do it though! Straight up 48 hour craps bender. Yea last time I was at City of Dreams their table didn't open till 1 PM and I had to be on a ferry at 1:30PM. It was a bummer so I hope I find a table that stays open round the clock! If not they gotta train more guys keep the table going all night.

I would hope the dealers do like us westerners at the table. We definitely do make it more authentic. ha. I love craps lingo is so f*cking Gold. No other game has so much to it. Glad you took home some money on the craps win.

If you got the money to burn why not do another trip :) Goodluck at the tables.
